Spotlight On AMX

Richardson, TX

AMX award-winning products span home control and automation, switching, distributed audio and video, and technology management.

Per a company spokesman: "AMX is dedicated to integrating a complex array of technologies and presenting users with a reliable, consistent, scalable automation system designed to simplify their lives."

AMX provides homeowners with a single system approach to managing a wide range of home electronics, including:

  • Distributed Audio & Video - AMX Touch Panels can be used to control multiple zones of distributed audio and video, providing customized environments for different areas of the house.
  • Automated Doors, Entryways & Gates - An AMX control system can automatically lock and unlock windows, doors, and gates to ensure that the home is secure.
  • Security Camera Surveillance - AMX provides total control of intruder security systems. Strategically placed CCTV cameras outside the house can relay visitors' images to fixed points of access control.
  • Remote Access to Whole Home Systems - Homeowners can access their residences remotely over the Internet to communicate directly with their AMX technology.
  • Multiple Lighting Scenes - Personalized lighting scenes (e.g., party, romantic, night time) can be created to set the mood for any occasion.
  • Environmental Controls - Pre-programmed system settings can even be used to make sure appropriate temperatures are maintained according to time of day or room usage.
  • Intercom Communications - Sophisticated intercom functions are fully integrated with AMX audio system components.
  • Personalized Sequence of Events - For example, as the homeowner approaches the front door, the control system can automatically turn on the exterior and interior lights, tune the television to a favorite channel, and adjust the heating or air conditioning to the preferred level.

AMX products are based on a high-performance platform (used by NASA) that includes brilliant touch screens with elegant aesthetics.
